Reginald was an excellent guide, kept us on time and the wine farms chosen were great. The service at Rickety Bridge was slow and wine presentation was lacklustre in comparison to the rest but this did not detract from the experience as a whole. Would have loved to have had more time on the wine tram instead of photo ops at random monuments, or less time could have been spent on lunch/wandering around towns. But overall it was a great way to see three major wine regions and would recommend the experience.

If you get Basil you are in for a treat. His knowledge of Capetown and its history was wonderful. He kept us on track throughout the day and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. The 3 wine tastings were excellent and the views beautiful.
Thank you Basil for a memorable day.

We went on this full day tour and were thoroughly pleased. Our guide Thanius was excellent. We went to four vineyards. Each one was great and had a different perspective on tasting. We ended up buying 6 bottles of Villiera Tradition Brut once we were back in the states. The scenery was beautiful! The lunch was great and the company on our trip was so fun. Highly recommend!

This is not a wine tour. We only went to 2 vineyards. Guide was named Adolf - and yes he started the tour by making an overdone Hitler joke. Adolf was more focused on steering us to his preferred shopping destinations and restaurants (even insisting we should all eat at his preferred place) than taking us to vineyards. He also refused to reveal where we were going making us feel like prisoners for the whole 10 hr ordeal. Ultimately just ran out of the van to get away once we saw a cab. Avoid. Wasted a whole day.

Pick up and drop off was fine. First tasting at around 10.00 in the morning followed by the second around 11.00 but then it was about 3.45 before the next tasting. In between there was a quick tour of Stellenbosch, then a drive to and late lunch in Franschoek before a very brief ride on the wine tram( barely 10 minutes). The guide was informative and knowledgeable. It's a pity that the day wasn't better arranged and that one of the tasting visits wasn't arranged so that lunch could have been taken at the same time or location.

We arranged to have a private car tour of the wine country, and when the guide arrived we got an older white van which had very uncomfortable seats, and it was clear the van was intended for a large group. There were only two of us. The guide was a very nice guy but did not have a scheduled agenda and left it up to us. That was not what we paid for; we paid for a guided tour of the wine country. The price of the Van tour was 1/4 less than the price we paid for the private car tour. When we got back, I asked our hotel concierge to see why this happened and if they would refund the price we paid. They refused so we canceled our tour with them to the Cape of good hope and hired another company.

This tour was more than I expected. We actually had 4 wine tasting experiences with one being on a wine tram ride. It was great to see the surrounding parts of Cape Town like Stellenbosh, Perl and Franschoek. The views were amazing. Although my hotel assisted me in choosing this venture, you could easily book it through their website. This is a great addition to your trip to Cape Town, SA.

After I spent some time in Cape Town, it was time to explore the surroundings and I decided to go on the full day winelands tour with African Eagle Day Tours.
I had a fantastic time! I was picked up right on time and after we picked up the rest of the group we headed to the first wine estate.
The three wine estates selected were lovely, all different and unique in their own way. Besides the wine tasting, we also got to try different cheeses at the first and third wine estate and Biltong at the second. I enjoyed the wine at all of them. My favourite estate was definitely Marianne, between Stellenbosch and Paarl. The view from the terrace was just magnificent.
The cellar tour at the first estate was rather basic but as I have been to different ones before, it was absolutely fine. We had half an hour in Stellenbosch to explore Dorp St and the Victorian and Cape Dutch houses at our own pace. Another highlight was the short ride on the Franschhoek Tram.
We stopped for lunch at a restaurant in Franschhoek, before we drove to the last wine tasting. As the sun set in the background we visited our last stop, the Nelson Mandela statue in front of the Drakenstein Prison.
Our guide, Jan, was very knowledgeable and gave useful information during the drive about the history of wine in South Africa, sights along the way as well as the towns. I was travelling alone and was the youngest by far but I felt well looked after. The bus does offer Wi-Fi but I didn’t feel like making use of it, I was spoiled with the passenger’s seat and enjoyed the gorgeous views of the winelands instead!
I would definitely recommend this tour!

Antonio (sp?) was a fantastic tour guide and helped us turn a rainy day in to a day full of fun that included not only wine tasting at four different vinyards, but chocolate and cheese pairing, as well as some brandy tasting. It was a great tour, at a great price, and the pick up/drop off at our hotel made it extremely convenient. This is a solid tour that you can feel good about booking.

It was an awesome day and the driver was so wonderfully patient. Due to low mobility he had to drop me off near the restaurant for lunch which he kindly did. Had an amazing day:)
